First Active House book now in stores
Co-authored by Active House Secretary General Lone Feifer, Prof. Marco Imperadori, Dr. Graziano Salvalai, Dr. Arianna Brambilla and Federica Brunone (see more about the authors here), the book ‘Active House: Smart Nearly Zero Energy Buildings’ provides an overview of the Active House vision, intended as a building design method “beyond” the passive approach for buildings of the future that will be more and more connected, smart and innovative. It offers a novel philosophical design approach in which buildings, new or renovated, are in balance with natural, renewable energies and become “concentrators-distributors” of energies instead of being consumers of resources. The book is composed of five chapters, providing information on fundamental aspects of innovations toward resource-efficient buildings, as well as case studies presenting the concept in practice. It demonstrates that a completely new design approach is possible, and that a turning point has been reached. Lastly, it shows how the Active House Alliance, along with designers, institutions, industries and academies, is bringing a breath of fresh air to the world of construction.
